Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don't care if I never get back
Let me root, root, root for the home team...

Well, so much for that...

The owners can do whatever they want, they aren't being forced.

Based on the thread title, I was thinking it was going to be some racial thing. This makes sense too...

It would be extremely rare for someone not to know they are allergic to peanuts until they attend a baseball game.

I am not advocating for it. Really, I don't give a rat's patootie if the owners decide to ban peanuts. Perhaps they've had enough of a problem for it to be a good idea for them. Maybe they are concerned about the number of potentially allergic children who are brought to games. Who knows?


My point was that the "just say no/just don't do it" crowd is promoting a simplistic view. Many people discover allergies after they've been exposed to something for years. One day, poof. Allergic. And you don't necessarily get any warning. Your first exposure to an allergen, or your first allergic reaction could be anaphylaxis, and then you're fairly likely to die, unless someone has an Epipen they'll use on you (cha-ching! $600, please), or you have an ambulance/EMT crew handy.

Please - people routinely sneak candy into the theaters via purses or pockets. With the cost of tickets these days - families can't afford another $30 on top of that for treats. When our kids were small - we stopped at the drug store - they each got a couple boxes of candy and then went to the movies. We'd buy the popcorn and a drink to share. Not everyone is made of money but they do like to treat the family to an outing once in awhile.

I'm sick of accommodating those that are a small minority. My kids have allergies - we never expected others to change anything they did to accommodate them.
This appeared in my sidebar as I was browsing. I totally agree. Why must we have to always give in? Let's ban peanuts everywhere!!!

I have an allergy to onions yet I don't expect anyone to change anything for me. If I eat out I always ask if the dish has onions. Occasionally they are not listed as included if they are not a real essential to a recipe. It's never been a big issue with me.

Just get it over with. Ban baseballs, spectators, players, wooden bats, aluminum bats, bases, fences, bleachers...
